. republicans in the senate who are open to some kind of deal with president obama and the democrats in the senate. if you have ten-plus republicans, willing to sign on to some kind of deal, that puts pressure on the house. it might create an opening for speaker boehner. although it might endanger his re-election to the speakership on january 3. >> doug: the 21st of this month, the "wall street journal" did a great piece on the inside negotiation over the fiscal cliff. i said this. referring to president obama. ol' office meeting he told mr. boehner that if the sides didn't use the agreement he would use the inaugurate address and "state of the union" to sell country the republicans at fault. he said i put $800 billion in tax revenue on the table. what do i get for that? you get nothing. >> he knows the republicans are fractured and i think the debate who will lead is ridiculous. nothing is going to come out of the house or the senate. president will decide what will be in the senate. the entire objective was not to pass anything to help with the debt or deficit. to destroy the repub

about addressing this problem. president obama and the democrats are saying we have a combined problem both in terms of not sufficient taxation and also we have to have cuts in spending. we have to do the cuts in spending over time because you do not want to endanger a very fragile economy. to respond directly to your question, why do i think the electorate looking at the present obama and cutting the debt in half, i think the answer is we went through a very difficult economic recession. some spending was in order. 50% of the debt or more in terms of spending on wars, prescription drug benefits and things not properly funded, and when you ask the american people about those things, they still blame president bush ii for the economic recession and for the debt more so than president obama. host: as far as the fiscal cliff, who will most likely make the next news story? guest: i think it has to be president obama. i think john boehner went through a devastating experience this last week when he called for a vote and did not have a vote. his troops abandoned him. it has been ongoing for

what you think barack obama is going to go to the house and senate democrats and say i need a yes vote on this. instead of dealing with the fact that the president of the united states is once again totally failing to provide leadership, the president has gotten us worried about whether grover norquist defines the republican party. as we know, if we are not worthy of the news media's respect and love we are a party that disappear. listen to the tone of the language when you watch the morning joe or, you know, "fox & friends." are often the whole thing and i want to make two points and the norquist. he did something important. he came up with the idea a no tax increase pledge as a way of drawing a line in the sand. let me be clear about my background. i voted under the tax increase in reagan. i say this in the reagan library. i voted against the tax increase of george h. w. bush. when i thought it was a disaster. when he balance the budget for four straight years, we did it by cutting taxes to accelerate economic growth. i clearly represent a different view.
